Ruane Prize for Outstanding Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Research

was initiated in 2000 by the Ruanes. It is given annually to recognize outstanding research in child and adolescent psychiatry. A $50,000 cash prize is awarded.


The Ruane Prize is an award of $50,000 given by the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression (NARSAD) to an outstanding scientist carrying out research on the causes, pathophysiology, treatment, or prevention of severe child psychiatric illness.

The scientist to be recognized is one who gives particular promise for advancing our understanding of psychotic, affective or other severe psychiatric disorders having their onset in childhood or adolescence. Contributions may be for clinical research or relevant basic science. The prize is bestowed at the annual New York City NARSAD Gala held each October.
